The most direct way everyone participates in democracy is by voting. When people make their voices heard in an election, government is more responsive.
For over 90 years, the League of Women Voters has been developing and implementing different ways to encourage people to get involved in the electoral process. This has included printed voters guides and candidates debates. People need information to register to vote, to get informed about issues and candidates, and to get-out-to-vote on Election Day.
Now, in the age of increased electronic communication, especially for a young demographic, the Brookline League is bringing information to people via email and Facebook. People look to the Internet to find their polling location, to learn who the candidates are, to get an absentee ballot applications, to understand ballot questions, and more.
The Brookline League has set up an Election Alert/Reminder service for Election 2012. People who subscribe (there is no charge) will receive periodic reminders and alerts with important election information. Subscribe by going to the League’s nonpartisan election website at www.vote2012info.com and click on the “Subscribe to Election 2012 Alerts.”
